Nice easy to moderate loop. Muddy, and all trails have not been completed but easy to find your way around. Beautifully redone since it reopened. Floating bridge is nice. Land bridge that used to be there doesn't exist anymore.

Well maintained paths. Great for an hour or so walk on fairly easy trails.

Drove 20 minutes to get here only to find dogs were not allowed. What a bummer!

Pretty. Slight uphill grade. Very easy, but...very busy, constant traffic noise. More of a afternoon walk instead of treadmill

Nice trail into the woods, not a harsh incline (my husband had back surgery and managed well). The signs at the beginning of the trail are miss leading! States dogs must be on a leash, then 1 mile later as you approach the wooden bridge/path, big signs says no dogs beyond this point! We were naughty and proceeded on as we were encouraged by some locals that said they bring their dogs all the time. Got a few dirty looks later on our walk...that put a damper on our walk.

The red trail is a good challenging trail with many hills.
